I can’t thank you enough for the invaluable information you provided in your stellar and comprehensive course work. It was worth every cent. What an incredible learning tool. Your program has given me so much confidence and industry knowledge. I feel well prepared for my upcoming test on Sept. 9th. I highly recommend this course for anyone looking to get involved in this exciting and cutting edge industry.
I have to admit that I was reluctant to purchase your course. I found several sites offering quick study and practice exams, but based on previous flying lessons from years ago, I found most of their content was inaccurate and sometimes very misleading. I finally took the plunge and enrolled this morning knowing that you offered a 30-day money back guarantee and I must say that I'm glad I did. The videos are very clear and content is very informative. I am impressed.
I wanted to let you know that I think your course is without a doubt the best way to increase your chances to pass the FAA's Aeronautical Knowledge Test. I could not imagine having to learn and decipher all the information on my own. Your email support is amazing!
I just want to thank you for making this course. Admittedly, I was skeptical about spending several hundred dollars on an online course due to so many scams out there. Your course is VERY informative, and very well delivered. I like the speed at which the content is delivered, and the slides that go with everything. I’m only about 21% into it, but I’m really enjoying it. Looks like I'm going to have to go back and take some more notes!
I just wanted to tell you that I think you have put together an absolutely phenomenal course. The regulations have “forced” me to have a certification for a part of my business where one was never before needed. I was less than excited to spend the extra time and money to have the permission to add aerial footage to my real estate listings. But, not only has your course already taught me that there is some logic to these regulations, but that I can use my education gained here to actually enhance my value to prospective clients.
I just want to compliment you on this EXCELLENT Drone Pilot Ground School course. I could not be happier with my decision to choose your company to help study for the Aeronautical Knowledge Test. All of the lectures, course information, slides, supplements, and links to useful resources have been well organized and laid out. Your customer service (even while you were on Paternity leave) has been exemplary. The follow-up email with helpful last-minute study tips and other notes shows that the customer care that you and your company provide is above and beyond what would typically be expected. I'm not going to just pass my AK test, I am going to ACE it!
Drone Pilot Ground School was great because it organized the material I needed to know. There were quizzes after each module to reinforce the material. As I studied, I knew how much lecture material remained so I could prepare efficiently, and the tests were representative of the actual exam. I took three of the five exams on Drone Pilot Ground School and received a 91%, 88%, 88% and got a 90% on the actual FAA Knowledge Test. I completed the FAA Knowledge Test in 30 minutes with the exam proctor confirming that I had the highest score of the day.
Thank you for offering such a comprehensive course. Before I took it, I knew nothing, and I mean nothing, about how to read sectional maps, the different kinds of airspace and how they relate to flying drones, effects of weather on drones and the different kinds of weather patterns etc. I also thought the last section on Key Legal Considerations for Starting a Drone Business was very helpful. I looked around for ways to study and pass the test, which I did on the first try, and your course was by far the best way.
Thank you for putting together such a great course. I'm a business manager for a medium-size dental office, and I'm also a business consultant. I have been through lots of continuing education in my life, and I have to say that your course was the best. It was informative, easy to use, and presented in a fun learning atmosphere. Again, I have to say thanks.
Just wanted to say thank you for the very easy to follow, professionally given, sUAS Part 107 test prep course. Just passed test today at noon. Scored in the high eighties. Yes, I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to get their Remote Pilot certificate
Just wanted to let you know that I passed my AKT this afternoon with a 90%. I appreciate the course, the way it was laid out and presented and the depth of information you put into it! A great resource and aid. I took the test along with two other guys who both scored lower than me and at least one of them had studied using one of your competitor's courses. :)
I have to say that I do not normally send anything to the owner of a program that I purchase, but I felt compelled to make an exception. I took my FAA exam this afternoon and passed with an 88%, which was consistent with my practice exams in your program. I found that the information you put together was well defined and completely understandable. Through both my undergrad and graduate degrees as well as a multitude of IT industry certifications, I've never focused on rote memorization to pass/ace a test because I find absolutely no value in remembering things long enough to pass a test. I place a great deal of value on gaining a functional understanding of the information being learned as a measurement of success in any academic endeavor. I take great pleasure in knowing that I understood 88% of the material in just a few weeks! You provided enough information to provide a basic or more understanding of all of the material and enough references to gain that additional understanding to take it to the next level. I'm glad I made the investment in your program and got right into it. It gave me enough time to get through it and spend a reasonable amount of time to review everything significantly. The interesting thing that happened was after the test when the owner of the FBO congratulated me on being the first to pass at his testing center. I thought it was because I was the first to take the test but that wasn't the case. Several folks had taken it before me today and none came close to passing. He asked me how I prepared and I pointed him to your website. I explained your course and my positive impressions of it. He wrote the info down so I hope it leads to some referrals to you. You helped me pass so I wanted to return the favor. Again, thank you for putting such a great quality program together at a fair price. Well done and much appreciated!
I just wanted to send you a quick note to say thanks for putting together such an amazing set of lectures and practice tests. I was able to pass my test today with an amazing 95%! I’m advocating your services in some major Facebook groups, and I hope it helps you out. There are a lot of folks that shoot real estate like myself that are looking for a top notch platform to help them study. I’m happy to direct them to Drone Pilot Ground School.
I just wanted to thank you for the excellent study techniques and study literature that you provided in your course. I just took the test today and passed with an 80%. Keeping in mind that with no prior aeronautical knowledge on terms and very little on concept presented somewhat of a learning curve going into this course. There's no doubt in my mind that without your course, I would not have even come close to passing. I appreciate the emails you're sending allowing access to industry resources like insurance & other things that'll point a newbie like myself in the right direction.
I want to thank you so much for the absolutely wonderful course you offered. I am very pleased to announce I passed the Aeronautical Test with a 92%! It was well worth the time and effort you put into all the lectures. Your dedication to help others proved to be extremely professional, and your passion for helping others succeed is unsurpassed. Everything from the actual course itself to the all the updates you provided throughout. You helped make it possible for me to pursue what I have been waiting for for a long time. Your course was spot on!
I wanted to thank you and your team for the ground school course. I still need to do your flight proficiency test, but I wanted to let you know that I took my Part 107 test this morning and passed. Your course was fantastic and the information covered spot on GREAT JOB guys. I have been telling anyone who has said they want to take the test to take your course and now I can testify to the course being exactly what they need to take so they too can pass the exam.
